David Carradine, Dead at 72

In MemoriumDavid Carradine was 72. He was best known for his role as Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s TV series Kung Fu, which spawned sequels in the '80s and '90s, but I knew him best as Bill in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill films.

When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.

I never understood how he couldn't beat an old blind guy for the pebble - I think he was the first professional student.
I liked him best in Bound for Glory.
Peace Grasshopper and by the way, Argie says you are off to hell because of that suicide thing...

Lew: Whenever someone dies, its sad - except of course when its a suicide. If that is the choice he's made why in hell would we be sad? He chose when to die - bully for him!

The production Kung Fu: The Legend Continues was based in Mississauga.

Argie: It's not about being sad or not, it's about your cult not letting him into the big show because he made a decision. Now your cult WILL let a women in who had an abortion, providing the correct Hail Mary or rosserie is kissed afterwards? Interesting, maybe they cut off the ties once there is no more money to extract?

Lew: Why do you care what the Catholic Church says about sin, heaven & hell? You're not Catholic and I doubt you ever will be so why worry your burnt out little brain?

OR maybe its just an excuse to attack my religion while ignoring the other faiths that promote an evil chaste system, forced marriage, female circumcision, and other despicable things.

I always thought he'd expire from the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart technique...

....from the hand of BEATRICE KIDDO!

I remember Carradine's appearance on the old Carson Tonight Show circa '74. Completely blitzed out of his mind and he was never invited back.

Which is weird because I've saw some of Carson's contemporaries blitzed and they were always welcome to return.

Oops.. thats 'caste' NOT chaste.

Argie: I do care what the Catholic Church says: because they prey on innocent people’s faith, which to me, breaks a very important commandment, but for some reason it got broken off the stone. I never attach anybody’s faith, just religion – and there is a big difference. I don’t attack a religion of an Argindir from Whogivesashitsitstan, because they don’t frequent TOMike or FreddieP with their whacked out idealism, so why waste the space.
PS on the OR: Everyone with more than me is part of an evil caste system, my wife forced me to marry her, and female’s don’t have a penis – so please call it something else.

Lew: Why so bitter today? You normally seem so mellow. Did you not get your shipment today?

Just grap your Che t-shirt and smelly jeans and go outside for a walk. You'll feel better, guaranteed!

I had a pull on the Olympic Torch and it stuck to my lip pulling off a big chunk of skin - thanks for caring...

the Kung Fu master will always be a source of wisdom for his students...

Lew, Argie, You are both wrong. Stop arguing now because it's worthless.
